Jerusalema dance challenge brought hope and joy to the students and staff of Colaiste na Riochta, Listowel. The viral ‘Jerusalema Dance Challenge’ captured our imaginations when shared by Tadhg Fleming who challenged his viewers to get their dancing shoes on (now let's hope he picks us as his winning video!!). The fun dance routine to the hit song ‘Jerusalema’by Master KG and Nomcebo Zikode was a very uplifting soundtrack in these difficult times. Our staff and students learnt the dance and performed it; check it out below we have very talented dancers! Staff and students donned the colours of the rainbow, and chose to dance together as part of our LGBTI+ stand up awareness week. It was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate diversity, equality and respect in our school- the core values of @kerryetb of which the school is under the patronage of. It also provided us a chance to reflect on the challenging journey we have all travelled during these difficult times and take pride in our remarkable, resilient and diverse school community. To be united in dance was both a wonderful, fun activity that certainly lifted all our spirits on a Friday.
